Sooo I have thought about this for a long time and I am probably not alone doing it. I feel that camera manufacturers (excepts Samsung) are several years behind other technical gadgets when it comes to software. Every single camera maker uses their own, pardon my french, ****ty software. It might be optimized etc, but why on earth can't they upgrade their cameras with new features and proper firmware updates? We have android now which have shown that open source is an awesome thing. Why doesn't the camera world have anything like android yet? Samsung is doing this and I think it is an awesome thing. If the camera makers can't get their asses off and provide us with apps and new features then we could do it ourselves if given the tools. But I guess they are afraid that nobody would buy new cameras then. Since nowadays the hardware is so good, people are practically buying new camera to get the latest software. I know I am. Imagine if we could make our own focus peaking, HDR bracketing, Time lapse, art filters etc etc etc.
